Unidentified Flying Objects and how they are investigated by the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) are part of the new season of "Inside Man" starring Morgan Spurlock that kicks off on CNN Sunday, April 13, at 10 p.m. ET.
MUFON Executive Director Jan C. Harzan said his group's participation began in Fall 2013 when show producers called with an interest in having Spurlock explore UFOs.
"They wanted to train Morgan professionally as a UFO field investigator and then immerse him into one or more actual investigations," Harzan said. "He took the training and the field investigation very seriously at sites around the country."
The training portion of the show will include MUFON Chief Technical Adviser Chuck Modlin and STAR Team Manager Fletcher Gray.
Communications Director Roger Marsh worked with both the CNN team and MUFON management and investigators to set up location shooting at multiple sites and to review current UFO sightings from around the country in search of good cases.
"Morgan's production team was very dedicated to finding the best cases," Marsh said. "We were trying to find cases of interest and current cases both at the same time. Many functional directors, state directors and field investigators from MUFON were very involved in the selection process."
The eight-show season begins April 13, with the MUFON UFO investigation show running on Sunday, May 18, described as "an examination of the history, theories and photographic evidence of UFO sightings."
